Campaigns complain of tactics Saturday

LAS VEGAS (AP) - The aftermath of the Nevada caucus turned bitter Sunday as the campaigns of Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama said they would complain to the Democratic Party of the other side's strong-arm tactics at caucus sites.

Obama's campaign complained that the Clinton camp distributed a rulebook to supporters that said caucus site doors would close at 11:30 a.m., unfairly shutting out Obama supporters who had until noon to register.

Similarly, the Clinton camp complained to reporters of widespread intimidation tactics, including Las Vegas Strip casino-hotel workers threatening co-workers to follow the Culinary Workers Union's endorsement of Obama or lose preferential shifts.

Nevada Democratic Party spokeswoman Kirsten Searer said the party was listening to the feedback on the caucus, "good and bad." But there would be no rewriting the result, she said.
